I thought this problem was only mine. Being subjected to popping, crackling, sounding almost like gun shots or explosions weeks before the Fourth of July, has become a common happening, I’ve learned throughout Fairfield County and across the tri-state area. Perhaps it’s the blanket cancellations of fireworks displays throughout the area. Or maybe thrill seekers are just feeling the need to push that thrill to the limit, no matter how neighbors and their pets feel. But frankly, I’ve had enough.
Happily, so has our first selectwoman, Brenda Kupchick. She was interviewed on WICC’s “Melissa in the Morning” on WICC a couple of weeks ago. When Melissa expressed concern about the nights of illegal fireworks in towns like hers, Brenda said she was definitely going to do something about it.
